Overwatch 2 Battle For Olympus Details: Playable Characters, Divine Ultimates, And Rewards

As part of Overwatch 2 Season 2’s Greek mythology theme, Blizzard is introducing a new, limited-time game mode: Battle for Olympus. The mode sees heroes go head-to-head in a free deathmatch, after which the hero with the most kills throughout the event will have a statue placed on the Illios Ruins arena map to commemorate their victory. The event runs from January 5-19 and offers players several limited-time prizes.

However, not all of Overwatch 2’s heroes and villains have been invited to these Olympic Games. Ramatra, Junker Queen, Reinhardt, Roadhog, Pharah, Widowmaker, and Lucio are elites who have been blessed with the divine powers of the seven Greek gods and are therefore able to compete.

With the favor of their gods, these heroes also get new skins and new abilities called Divine Ultimates. These abilities will function like the character’s normal ultimate, albeit with some fun, legendary twists. For example, the Widowmaker will take on the form of Medusa, and when using Divine Infra-Sight, gains the ability to turn opponents looking at her to stone. The full list of heroes, their chosen deities, and their divine ultimates is as follows:
